Buttermilk Pancakes

People, step away from the Bisquick! Seriously! This is your new go-to pancake recipe. I had been searching for one for years. I didn’t need fancy, I just needed delicious. And really, I think homemade, from scratch, pancakes are practically as easy as opening that box of Bisquick. It is worth the extra 2 minutes of work! We made these this weekend and my husband (who really is not a pancake fan) ate 5! My son devoured his 2 in about 10 seconds! And while I am telling how much we all ate, I had 4! Moment on the lips, lifetime on the hips…oh well. They are so tasty I couldn’t help it. They are buttery and sweet, and I love the fact that they aren’t so dense.

And for all you moms out there, I will double and sometimes triple this recipe so that I can throw the leftovers in the freezer. It is so great to let the kids have pancakes in the morning, even if you’re in a hurry. Pop these babies in the micro for 30 seconds or so and you have a quick, hot breakfast for the kiddos!

Buttermilk Pancakes

  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2  tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 1/2 c. buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoon butter, melted

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Then add egg, buttermilk and melted butter. Stir with whisk until combined. Batter will be a little lumpy. At this point I put all my batter in a gallon ziploc plastic bag. I cut the tip of it and start putting the batter on a hot griddle. It makes clean up a dream, and no measuring cup falling down in the batter! Cook on medium high for about 2 1/2 minutes or until bubbles appear on the top of the pancake. Flip over and cook for an additional minute.
